Main Experiment: list of plots (SP1: 2/3)

Usage Rights

This data is Private.

Dataset Abstract

Information about the plots in the Main Experiment: tree and shrub species richness (data from Z1), community composition (data from Z1), species presence/absence data, and plots that should be excluded for analysis at plot and species levels (e.g. due to planting mistakes, non planted plots).

This dataset is used together with the Main Experiment inventory dataset (SP1).

Spatial Extent

The Main Experiment consists of two sites (A & B) located near to the village Xingangshan in Dexing County, Jiangxi province. Each site covers 256 1-mu plots (after excluding all plots from the F and G scenarios and all plots with 0- tree species richness). Each plot comprises 400 trees (planted as 20x20 grid).

Published

This data is not for publication.

Data Analysis

This dataset will be used together with tree size data to estimate effects of species richness on stand basal area

data is messy and had to be excluded
Martin didn't see any tree (even outside 16c area) in 2009 ; Xuefei said she is not sure if plot was planted (see emails). Because of all these doubts, I excluded the plot
